The event, held by the South Gwinnett Rotary Club, will put 3,000 rubber ducks in the West Gwinnett Aquatic Center’s lazy river on Sept. 9. The first three ducks to cross the finish line will win cash prizes for the people who “adopt” them. First place gets $2,500, second place gets $1,000 and third place gets $500.
The rubber duck race is a fundraiser for the Rotary Club. All of the money raised will go to causes the club supports, including the Lawrenceville Boys and Girls Club, Corley Elementary School and the Brookwood High School Interact Club.
